When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow through. Then, spontaneously, the body heals itself. -- Ida Rolf

The Soma Series
Soma Structural Integration is ideally delivered as a series of 11 two-hour sessions. It can also be performed as issue-specific treatment in 60-, 90- or 120-minute increments. Clients stand to gain the most from proceeding through the entire Soma Series, but distinctly sense change with less work. For most people, even a few sessions result in marked pain relief, improved posture and increased body performance.

Each session within the Soma Series is completely
different from the last and follows a specific recipe:

Releasing the Superficial Layers

  1. Freeing the Breath
  2. Grounding the Lower Leg
  3. Releasing the Sidelines of the Body

The Deepening: Opening Core Connectivity

  1. Freeing the Pelvic Floor
  2. Balancing the Upper Pelvic Attachments
  3. Lengthening the Entire Back Line
  4. Mobilizing the Shoulder Girdle, Neck and Head

Integration: Re-Sequencing and Balancing Core/Sleeve Relationships

  1. Lower-body Movement Re-education
  2. Upper-body Movement Coordination
  3. Soma Arm Session: Tying Arm Movement to the Torso
  4. Mobilizing the Frame at the Joints
